LIGHT FESTIVAL FOR ALL SENSES
Visitors can expect an enchanting winter wonderland of light, illumination, illusion, music and culinary delights. A fantastic world that appeals to all the senses: A unique sea of lights in the inner courtyard of the Landesmuseum Zurich, magical storytelling, glowing cotton candy, mulled wine, concerts by mysterious mythical creatures and other playful surprises for young and old – staged by Yuki and her fabulous friends. Long evenings for Zurich residents and cosy Advent evenings for friends, colleagues and all other visitors. An interactive experience to dive into the sky and get closer to the stars every evening from 5 p.m. Until 10 p.m. Yuki and her terribly spectacular friends play music and take the visitors into a faraway dimension.
In the front area of the inner courtyard, which is open to all visitors at all times, the guests can enjoy plenty of culinary treats (gastro open till 12pm). Before, after and during the show, you can warm up here, have refreshments, meet friends or immerse yourself further in the world of illumination listening to beautiful winter beats. A large light palace with plenty of room for dark winter evenings, cocktail bars with illuminated drinks and a large selection of wonderful winter snacks. Plenty of show, fantasy, lights, projections and fire – a true festival for all the senses. A transparent restaurant with room for up to 300 people will be put up in the inner courtyard of the Landesmuseum to complete the offer. You can book a cosy get together over a fondue at the Illuminarium online here.
